I love the Caribbean and with so many fabulous things to do in St. Lucia, it is one of my favorite islands. It is everything you picture a tropical paradise island in the Caribbean to be: gorgeous beaches, lush rainforests, colonial history and tons of vacation activities to do in beautiful weather. Here are just a few of the best things to do in St. Lucia.
1. Hike the Pitons
The most distinctive geographical feature of the island is the Pitons. These two mountains are carpeted with lush dark green forest and dominate the skyline majestically. They even appear on the country’s national flag. Sometimes called the breasts of St. Lucia, the only thing about them that lacks imagination is their names – Gros Piton and Petit Piton – nowhere near as romantic as their aspect, but the boring names don’t take anything away from the fact that hiking the Pitons is one of the essential things to do in St. Lucia. If the thought of hiking is too much, take a boat trip and see them from the water.
